This summer, my friend Debra went home to Manitoba to visit her family and managed to nail this do-it-yourself-on-a-dime bedroom makeover (with help from her lovely sisters) for her tween niece. I stole these photos off of her Facebook and had to share these fun ideas with you:
|Love the flower painted on top of this little table!|
|fabric wall art|
|Funky and fun fabric recovered an old office chair.|
|Now tell me how cool that painted flower on the ceiling is?! Being an anti-white ceiling kind of girl, this tickled me pink. :) And yes, she says it's free-handed.|
|Flowers and stripe are hand painted on the wall.|
|Can you guess what lives in this fun fabric covered cabinet?! It's not a hamster...|
And now Debra has forsaken me and moved away from Michigan.... sigh. But I have bits of her all over my house - the log lamp she and her hubby gave to me because they couldn't cross the border with it, the salmon we had for lunch today since I inherited her freezer food, the shirt I wore yesterday that she gave me before she left, the cozy candle that's burning in my kitchen I snagged from her junk pile.... yup, it's almost like she's still in my house! But she's not, and I wish she was.... Miss you, Debra!!!
